Mill Valley Philharmonic brings free, live orchestral music to people in their own communities.

The mission of Mill Valley Philharmonic is to enrich the cultural life of the Bay Area by offering free orchestral programs to people of all ages and means in their own communities. As an organization, we believe that music is a vital part of individual and community life. Whether participating as a player or as a listener, music engages our imaginative powers, awakens our aesthetic sensibilities, and inspires our creative expression.
